Allow me to voice my strong support for the proposed port at Longview. We need to move on with the environmental study as quickly as possible. Basic economic principles already tells us that not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of exports at Millennium; supply routes have no effect on demand. Moreover, the history of US use of PBR coal indicates that the use of PBR coal in coal based energy countries will result in a reduction of net GHG given the lower sulfur and other lower GHG emission characteristics of PBR coal; thus, the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. Keep it realistic. Keep it local. This is an important project that will provide a vital role in boosting the economy and one that should be allowed to proceed in as quick of a manner as possible. Sincerely, J JB
